After featuring a record field of 22 entries in the previous event at Singapore, the TCR International Series increases further to 25 for the Thai event.
Two new outfits will make their first appearance in the series: Asia Racing Team from China and Niza Racing from Malaysia; they both will compete also in the TCR Asia series running two and one SEAT León cars respectively.
The drivers represent 15 different nationalities. The contingent of newcomers is led by a couple of well known international touring car aces: Alain Menu in the Top Run Subaru STi and Hugo Valente at the wheel of one of the Campos Racing Opel Astra OPC.
Taiwan’s Johnson Huang replaces his fellow countryman George Chou in one of the three SEAT cars run by Roadstar Racing; Robb Holland from USA will be driving the Focus TCR of FRD Ford HK Racing Team; Douglas Khoo from Malaysia will compete for Niza Racing; local driver Munkong Sathienthirakul steps in for Frank Yu in the Craft-Bamboo SEAT León; a second Thai, Tin Sritrai, was entered by Asia Racing Team alongside Kevin Pu from China.
